Upcoming Photo workshop to India

India is a country of unmatched diversity, spiritually, geographically, culturally, linguistically and more which makes a favorite for photographers around the world. Of all the places I have visited India is definitely one of my favorites, which is why I am excited to announce this photography workshop in partnership with The Flat Planet Travel.

Sufi Muslims at Nizamuddin Dargah in New Delhi

On this photography workshop we will start out in New Delhi wandering through the neighborhoods, markets, mosques, shrines and temples of Old Delhi, Nizamuddin, Mehrauli and more. Next we will head to Jodhpur, The Blue City, where we will explore this wonderfully colorful city and the surrounding desert landscapes that are home to wonderful and beautiful people and cultures.

One of the stops on this Photography workshop will be Jodhpur, The Blue City.

From Jodhpur we will drive to Udaipur along a route that will take us through the incredible Aravalli mountain range, past the magnificent Ranakpur Temple, a beautifully and intricately carved Jain temple, as well as wild monkeys, Rajasthani camel herders, painted elephants and more; it is truly an amazing drive.

Udaipur is known as the “Venice of the East”

Once in Udaipur we will take our time as we explore the beautiful waterways, ghats, palaces and more. Additionally, we venture outside the city to the south to experience rural Rajasthani desert life. We will have the privilege of eating with locals, creating images of the beautiful rocky landscapes of Rajasthan and more. Finally we will make our way back to New Delhi, stopping for two days in Jaipur, The Pink City before we make our way home.

This workshop will be an unforgettable adventure and is designed for photographers who want to enhance their visual storytelling skills in a relaxed yet focused mentoring environment.

The exact dates and price will be announced soon so be looking for these details. Until then stop buying Starbucks, have a garage sale and do whatever else you need to do to find the money to join us because you will not want to miss this adventure of a lifetime!

Six hours and counting!

My bags are packed for 3 weeks in India.

At 8:40 tonight I board a plane to London and then on to India for 3 weeks. For the first week I am going to be by myself doing some personal shooting in Old Delhi, Nizamuddin Dargah, Jodhpur and Udaipur, which I am super excited about. I love the color of India so spending some time in Jodhpur, The Blue City, should be fun.

Starting on the 28th, I will shooting for an organization called Serve India in various villages and cities including Varanasi, which I am excited about as well. Depending on internet I am going to try to post some postcards and screen savers so be looking for those as well as updates about my trip.

Upon returning I will be writing a review of the Think Tank Photo Street Walker Pro so be looking for that. I will be giving the bag a beating and I am confident it is can take is so be looking for my review soon.

In closing I just want to let you know about a great organization called The Plywood People. I spent some time with Jeff Shinabarger, the founder of The Plywood People and Giftcardgiver.com,  yesterday at their offices in Atlanta and had a great time. You will be hearing more from me about this great organization in the future as well.

Cheers
